Just purchased a kilo of Soya chunks & wanted to know if anyone has made any yummy quick recipes with these soya chunks?

Seems like a good source of protein for us vegetarians :).

Not if you have thyroid issues.

As a vegetarian, I rely on these a lot. I just soak them in hot water, squeeze out the water and put them as toppings in whatever I eat, especially soups like chilli and salads. You can also marinade them for a bit in salt, paprika and light toast them.

I am guessing you are Indian. Just google for soy chunk recipes, there's a ton on the Internet. There's curries and biryanis and what not that have these as the main ingredient :-)

Breakfast cereal!

----> Soak your portion overnight (water, milk,whatever)

Next morning I add more liquid and gently heat it on the stove. It's like a superhigh protein porridge! Topp with whatever you desire :-)

I'm still experimenting! Next week i'm planning to make a high protein vegan chili! I'll post the recipe on my blog...or might even on here! I really need to figure out how to post pics -.- Do u NEED a photobucket account to do so? I need a really simple step by step manual haha...

I've also thought of making ''meat''balls! Or any kind of patty...

Will deffo have to try soaking em in marinade...

are they quite filling? because a 100g doesn't seem like alot even though its 388 cals!

Ive sent you a private message by the way!

Marinate them in chilli mmm, great for snacks & toppings which i never thought of!


Just found a website with quick easy recipes with Soya Chunks!

They gain volume, once you soak em. so yeeeeeesss they are really filling, thats why like 30-40g dry is enough (for me)!

Interesting topic. I just looked at their macros, waw, high in protein. I'd eventually take 150 grams of those, with vegies, sounds great. Try to fry some mushrooms, and red pepper.
Also for a post workoutt meals, sounds to be the perfect one. :)

Lets us know how you dealt with them
